Stunning UFO-style hotel in the Arctic Circle

Incredible renderings have emerged of the spaceship-style lodge, which is scheduled to open in 2021 in northern Norway just above the Arctic Circle.

The images show how hotel Svart will sit in a breathtaking location at the foot of Svartisen - Norway's second largest glacier - and it will be set above the water on stilts. Architects went about crafting the unusual structure so it will use 85 per cent less energy than a regular hotel would.They plan on using wood for the most part - instead of steel and concrete - to build the ring-shaped inn and it will be adorned with solar panels to harvest sunlight for power. The walls of the eco-friendly building have been strategically designed to insulate in the winter and allow for ventilation in the summer. 


Hotel Svart was designed by a team from the Oslo-based architecture firm Snøhetta.
Situated just above the Arctic Circle in a remote patch of untouched countryside, stays at Svart will provide the perfect opportunity to see the ethereal Northern Lights.Other outdoor activities set to be on offer include hiking, kayaking and mountain biking. 

“Svart” is the first building to be built after the energy positive Powerhouse standard in a Northern climate. Not only does this new hotel reduces its yearly energy consumption by approximately 85% compared to a modern hotel, but it also produces its own energy - an absolute “must” in this precious arctic environment. The hotel will also become the world’s northernmost Powerhouse building.
